Kelly Hamilton

Hi, I’m Kelly Hamilton, a photographer and webmaster from Long Beach, CA. I’m drawn to photography because it has a unique ability to freeze time and preserve something you care about. Sometimes all you need is a single photo to explain an entire point in history, imagery is very powerful, especially in this new digital world. Photos can change your mood or your mind about literally any subject. Photography, for me, is an excuse to connect and reach out when I would have felt awkward otherwise. I love taking photos of people and capturing them in it. I have met some of my favorite people by saying “Hey, can I take your photo?”
